Regulation of Canada’s investment industry is, well, confusing – to put it mildly. CIFP has created an easy-to-use, interactive map aimed at simplifying the layers (and layers) of regulatory oversight in this country. All users have to do is click on a province or territory, and a drop-down menu appears with a hyperlinked list of regulators in each region. There’s also an option to click on the Canadian flag for a list of the oversight bodies at the national level.
Although this is straightforward, navigating the map is yet another reminder of why Canada needs a cooperative securities regulator. Read more in the IIAC’s (appropriately) entitled Why the Cooperative Regulator is Better.
